Runners Confession #2: No Training Plan = No Motivation

What’s going on here? Seriously? I’m feel like a whiny baby when it comes to running these days. I want to run, I love to run, I enjoy running but I am seriously lacking some motivation since my half marathon in October. OCTOBER was forever ago!

No training plan no motivation

Instead, I put on a cozy fire, relax and forget about my trusty treadmill 😦

I have no training plan to follow. No major race to focus on. Oh, and I just want to sleep since I’m up 1-3 times a night with Hilary still. Seriously, when is she going to sleep better? Talk about mother running problems! And yes, I know I’m not the only one out there…please tell me I’m not.

I’m hoping the fact that I packed my running bag this morning may give me a little boost. After all, If I put my mind to it I reach my 1000th kilometer by the end of this week!

Lunch Time: And cue in the motivation! I FORGOT MY GARMIN!!!!!!!! It was going to be a naked run, until I hit up MapMyRun online and confirmed the route I was going to take.

6k in 35:59 :)

It was SO beautiful outside I could have run in short and a tank top! 6k in 35:59 according to my Timex watch – Not.Too.Shabby! I’m hoping the December running challenge I’ve signed up for will keep me motivated in December with Run Steff Run.

Are you lacking motivation right now? 

Anyone doing a December challenge? If so, which one?

Could you run in shorts and a t-shirt today, Nov 25th ?
